UW-Green Bay Mathematics Requirements

 Your actual mathematics placement at UW-Green Bay will be based on a placement test which is very similar to the tests given in the Early Mathematics Placement Test (EMPT).

Your score on the actual placement test could be higher if you continue your study of mathematics during your senior year. The purpose of the EMPT program is to give you an indication of where you stand now so that you can plan your senior mathematics program.

In the following pages you will find the mathematics requirements established by the academic programs at UW-GB. Refer to the mathematics requirement for your chosen field of study and then to your mathematics skills level below. That should give you a good idea of how much more mathematics preparation will be needed so that you can major in your chosen program of study.

The bottom line is this: if you wish to begin your college career with the courses which are most important to your field of specialization, then make sure that you have mastered all the prerequisite mathematics courses at your high school during both the junior and senior year.

If you are interested in learning more about mathematics requirements for different fields of college study, your guidance counselor or mathematics teacher will be able to help you find that information. They can also help you plan your senior year schedule in a way which will be most beneficial to you.
